The Illegal Curve Hockey Show Sandwich Contest

Posted by Drew Mindell in Illegal Curve News,Radio on July 19, 2011 — 18 Comments

As anyone who has ever listened to The Illegal Curve Hockey Show can attest to, part of the reason we so enjoy being on air is the guarantee of having something to eat post show. Numerous past editions of the program have featured lengthy discussions regarding what’s for breakfast/lunch/dinner after we get off air. (Sometimes even breakfast is what’s for lunch & dinner).

Lately though, largely due to either a severe case of heat stroke affecting all of Illegal Curve, or because Hustler & Lawless have their own sandwich, we have been pondering what The Illegal Curve Hockey Show sandwich would look like.

(To listen to that discussion & the initial process undertaken to create The Illegal Curve Hockey Show Sandwich, please check out the July 13 & July 18 episodes of the show.)

I can now report that The Illegal Curve Hockey Show has partnered up with Harrison Steek of Myer’s Deli, to bring The Illegal Curve Hockey Show Sandwich to fruition.

We need your help however, as getting the Illegal Curve team to agree on a sandwich is less likely to happen than getting Drew to pass up someone else’s leftovers.

We need suggestions from our loyal audience about what you think the Illegal Curve sandwich should consist of.

Once the sandwich is created, we will draw a name from all of the people who made a suggestion, and award them some sweet Illegal Curve shwag. If you’re really lucky, maybe we will even throw in a night on the town with Illegal Curve’s very own Ezra Ginsburg.

The first step is to check out the menu from Myer’s Deli, peruse the menu options in excruciating detail, and help create The Illegal Curve Hockey Show Sandwich!

You can send your Illegal Curve Sandwich Suggestions to us on Twitter, Facebook, Email, or leave them in the comment section of Please make sure we have your contact information so we can inform the grand prize winner.

Submissions must be received by Sunday July 24, 2011.

Help create The Illegal Curve Hockey Show Sandwich and become an integral part of Illegal Curve lore!

    Man, being able to spend an evening hanging out with Ezra would be -awesome-.  Sign me up.

  2. I don’t want to spend any time with Ezra, but I am intrigued by a red pepper dip as a “spread” on any sandwich.

    Hum….will airfare be included with the grand prize, or will a day with Ezra be scheduled during the Jets opening weekend? Excuse me now….ive got to get thinkin’!!!

  6. M Remis says:

    Must include mustard and pickle and be unique in some way

  7. A P says:

    montreal smoked meat and corned beef with hot mustard on rye

  8. I second this suggestion.  Add in potato salad on the side too

  9. ICdave says:

    A little corned beef (drew), some pastrami (rich), add some smoked turkey (ez) with a shtikel of roast beef on rye topped by hot mustard.  With a kosher pickle (me) on the side.

  10. First, you must follow the sandwich commandments by Showalter

  11. Tim Bonnar says:

    Bread: Has to be Croissantwich for the curve. I know that isn’t on the menu, but you gotta go outside the box for something “Illegal”

    Dressing: There should be a light layer of Mayo on the bottom for the ice.

    Innards: Meat should be Sundried Tomato (Red) & Turkey Breast (White) a thin layer of Blue Cheese (Blue) to represent old school Jets an Illegal Curve colors. 

    Should come with a news paper for the knowledge..

  12. ICdave says:

    Love the ingenuity Tim.  Well thought out.  You had me at Croissant but lost me at Blue Cheese.

    Blue Cheese is nice in small quantities. If you make it miracle whip instead of Mayo, it will cut the bitterness. Try it!

    Really though, I just needed it for the color scheme go.Also, I am sure people could substitute the cheese!

  15. Tim Bonnar says:

    My other suggestion is that you start with an open faced sandwich, load it up with cheese (any kind). Then you throw in in the oven to melt the cheese. 

    When melted, you take is out, add a stack of bologna add the second piece of bread and voila. you have a cheesy, half baked sandwich that is full of bologna. Which seems bout right for you guys.. 🙂
